DELIVERING DEVELOPMENT

 
 

Delivering Development: Globalization’s Shoreline and the Road to a Sustainable Future is a vivid account of two centuries of life in rural Ghana, demonstrates how commonly held beliefs about globalization and development fail to capture the lived experiences of the global poor.  Over his 13 years of working along what he calls "globalization's shoreline," a world region buffeted by the economic, political, and environmental decisions of those living in wealthier places, Carr has concluded that most experts misunderstand what they are trying to fix, and cannot tell if they are fixing it.  Delivering Development is an eye opening, you-are-there book that compels the reader to question conventional wisdom and redefine what assistance to the developing world really means.
